  6. Archbishop Michael Visits New Mission Station in Plattsburgh, NY

    On Saturday, August 19th, Archbishop Michael visited the new Diocesan mission station in Plattsburgh, NY. Twenty-eight people attended the Divine Liturgy and stayed for the coffee hour. His Eminence answered questions about the future of the mission, the process for establishing a name for the mission and what it will take to have a full-time priest in the area to serve as the community grows. The mission will continue to have monthly services and His Eminence said he will be willing to make a visit closer to the Christmas season. The mission gained a new Orthodox Christian this Saturday, bringing the total Orthodox Christians here to 22. In addition, we have one catechumen. We are grateful to God for His many blessings, and we thank Archbishop Michael and our Diocesan family for their prayerful and generous support!
